The ArtSpace Gallery in Maynard will host an exhibition titled “In Passing” that opens Wednesday, June 10, and continues through July 10. The pieces on display will mix photography with painting or printmaking, each exploring how altered photos can change the memory of a place or event through motion. The gallery, at 63 Summer St., is open 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday. For more information, visit www.artspacemaynard.com.

The Hopkinton Trails Club is inviting fellow hikers to be part of the audience for an HCAM-TV segment on Thursday, June 11, at 7 p.m. Marjorie Turner Hollman, author of “Easy Walks in Massachusetts,” will talk about trails discussed in her books, which include local treks and scenic sites along the Charles and Sudbury rivers. Each chapter gives directions to a trailhead, a map, distance, conditions, and points of interest.

Walker, a Needham-based mental health organization, opened a new building at its Beacon High School campus in Watertown late last month. The Nancy C. Lincoln Center (above) includes space for recreation and arts, a gallery, classrooms, and a postgraduation planning department. The private school works with students between the ages of 14 and 22 who have mental health, learning, social, and emotional challenges. The 4,776-square-foot Lincoln Center, at 917 Belmont St., is named after a former director of the school. For more information on Walker, visit www.walkercares.org.
